Imagine shilling out hundreds of dollars to see Beyoncé in concert, then being too distracted by virtual animated monsters on you iPhone screen to enjoy the show. One nosy fan called out a crowd member exhibiting such behavior a Beyoncé show near Paris at Stade de France last Thursday. The epic video has gone viral, sending a clear message to Pokémon Go players around the world: “Live in the moment (especially when the moment includes Beyoncé).”
It’s not just Queen Bey who’s been affected. Rihanna has experienced the same thing, and had a clear message for her fans.
“I don’t want to see you texting your boyfriends or girlfriends,” she said at her Saturday show in Lille, France. “I don’t want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this bitch.”
Here’s the offending fan at the Formation World Tour:

Not the Pokemon Rihanna!!! 😩 https://t.co/GA8qUpAwj5—
